Interview Magazine’s September Issue Bows With Six Covers: Craig McDean’s cover featuring Amber Valletta - Forgive me, fashion gods! I have done the unspeakable… I have chosen Amber Valletta over Naomi Campbell.
Valletta looks surreal as if she’s being captured as a René Gruau portrait… and I’m a sucker for a woman in a tie, really. I have always been a bigger fan of the more moodier supermodels of the 90s like Valletta, Shalom Harlow and Yasmeen Ghauri. Linda Evangelista reigns over ALL though.
(Aside: Why is the only black model in the cover series naked wearing shackle-esque jewelry? Are we STILL doing this? Things that make you go, “Hmmm…” )
